Review:

"...it would be useful for a safety professional or operations manager looking for examples of incidents to use in training." --The Chemical Engineer, Chemical Process Safety, Fourth Edition

"The emphasis in this book is on accidents that have occurred as the result of the unforeseen effects of changes to chemical plants. The descriptions are well written, easy to read and bring out the essentials of each incident. Everyone who works in the process industries, from operator to operations director, should read the book". --Trevor Kletz, ICI, IChemE "It is very welcome to see that Sanders has published this collection of cases, and he provides very valuable lessons for the chemical process industry… This book should be essential reading for not just chemical engineers but engineers and safety managers worldwide." --Dr. P.R. Lewis, Lecturer in Materials Engineering at the Open University
